“Excellent Tearoom/Coffee Shop and Try the Traditional Sri Lankan Curry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

As a family we often visit Tiffins in Forfar for a lunchtime treat and cup of coffee. Rohan and Sharmali the proprieters are really friendly as are the other staff too. Tables are always kept clean, service is fast and food is excellent. If you like curry you must try Sharmali's traditional Sri Lankan Curry mild, medium or hot to your taste. Well worth visiting. In my view the best coffee shop in Forfar.

“Cute and Yummy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

We were in Forfar for my great aunt's funeral service with no time to research places to eat before we came. We chanced upon Tiffins the day we arrived. I think the best recommendation we can give is that the food was so good that we decided to eat lunch there 3 days in a row. Everything was tasty -- chicken curry was a big hit. Portions were perfect size. Excellent value. The staff was very friendly, helpful and as sweet as all the delightful baked goods. Thank you Tiffins for being a bright spot in our trip.

“Best in Forfar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

We are regular visitors to Tiffins. The food is excellent and the helpings sufficient. The Chicken Curry is particularly good, either with rice or salad. The owners and staff are the best, friendly, approachable and helpful. The atmosphere is very pleasant. We will continue to patronise this establishment. Thanks Rohan, Shaemi and all your staff.
Only one observation - what happened to the "No Cellphone" signs? Peace and quiet to enjoy ones meal without the intrusion of another patron's phone conversation is to be treasured these days. Please bring them back.

“Absolute gem......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Visited this small tea room in Forfar today and what an absolute gem it is too! Went in for a drink and a cake this morning and had a good look at the menu so decided to go back for lunch later in the day. I had the chicken curry which was to die for, lovely and creamy with loads of flavour and extremely good value for money. My husband and step-daughter had the stovies and they were delicious too. Our bill for all three of us came to around £20 including drinks which represents brilliant value. The staff were excellent and very friendly and very attentive.

“Definitely worth a visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

I recently visited this lovely coffee shop in Forfar with a family member. The service was excellent and the waitress was very polite, friendly and professional throughout. We found Tiffins to have a very pleasant atmosphere and both an appealing and varied menu. The carrot cake in particular is terrific! Additionally, some friends of mine recently visited and were most impressed with the service and the food. I would happily give Tiffins a strong recommendation and I am very much looking forward to the next visit!
